Janelle B. Moore has spent the last 14 years as part of a "think tank" consulting practice that provides executive-level advisory, planning, coaching, and training services for both civilian and defense agencies within the federal government and private firms. She is a former military spouse, parent of a military dependent with special needs, and an advocate for military families, children with disabilities and veterans. She is the co-author of several books with Don Philpott, including The Capital Planning & Investment Control Guidebook. As well as co-author of The Military Marriage Manual (R&L, 2011), Life After the Military (R&L, 2011), The Wounded Warrior Handbook (Government Institutes, 2008), and Special Needs Families in the Military (GI, 2011). Don Philpott has been writing, reporting, and broadcasting on international events, trouble spots, and major news stories for almost 50 years. He is the author or co-author of more than 200 books, including The Wounded Warrior Handbook (GI, 2008).
Drawing on the experiences and insights of service members, veterans, their families as well as their own, the authors have developed a guide that provides a comprehensive, practical, and relatable overview of strategies and resources to promote resilience and recovery as service members and their families negotiate the challenges posed by deployment and separations during active duty service and the years beyond. Military members, veterans, their families as well as service providers will find this a valuable reference. -- Elisabeth Stafford, MD, Colonel (Retired) U S Army
